Tar & Roses home is in Nagambie Central Victoria and produces wines inspired by classic varietals from the Mediterranean and was named after the signature characteristics of Nebbiolo. The name also ties back to the winemaking team behind the venture, the legendary Don Lewis and his winemaking partner Narelle King. Following the passing of Don in 2017 this represents the final vintage of his great career with Narelle now carrying on the Tar & Roses tradition in 2018 and beyond.
Sourced from four main vineyards; one in the King Valley, one in Sutton Grange, the Stratford Vineyard just north of Nagambie as well as the Mitchelton vineyard. The higher altitude of the first two vineyards provide cooler conditions, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly, ideal for the development of the delicious classic fresh peach and pear flavours, while the warmer region brings out the more tropical aromas of the flavour spectrum.
Alluringly fragrant with sweet pear, honeydew melon and strawberry fruit flavours, bundled up in bright natural acidity. Hints of rose petal and guava dance around the edges. It’s rich, smooth and elegant, testament to the winemaking prowess of Don Lewis and Narelle King. Enjoy it alongside calamari salad with sliced pears, walnuts, red capsicum and rocket.
